My wife and I just spent two nights at the Inn and loved it. My wife's job is stressful and she needed to get away. Our birthdays are a few days apart and so we decided to splurge stay someplace fancy with a spa and some local color. The Fairhaven area of Bellingham is right next door to the Chrysalis and they looked to have a good spa. At first we were a little concerned about the trains since my wife is generally a light sleeper. Those concerns were amplified a bit at first when we found our water (and track) facing room equipped with earplugs, but in the end the trains were a non issue. A number passed while we in the room, but the hotel sits somewhat above the tracks and the trains go by slowly so the noise is minimal. There was none of the vibration that also usually accompanies nearby trains either. On the other hand the room was delightful, the staff helpful and the spa wonderful. We each took 90 minute Swedish massages, which were well worth the expense. I've had fancy hotel spa massages before, which were more of a "feel good by the laying on of hands" sort. This was a real deep massage, with some discomfort when the therapist found a tight spot. Days later, though, I'm still feeling the positive effects. We also availed ourselves of happy hour in the bar. Our drinks and small plates were excellent and more than satisfied our need for dinner.
